What is the Habitat for Humanity Women Build?

*The mission of Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program is to recruit, educate and nurture women to build and advocate for simple, decent and affordable houses in their communities. Greater Indy Habitat for Humanity will host its fourth Women Build in 2017 for a deserving family in need with the support of women leaders and volunteers. Learn more at indyhabitat.org/women-build.

* By signing up for this class you are donating the entire class fee to Team:Build Her Up

Why is it important?
Women Build puts the tools into women’s hands to fight poverty housing. Women make up 50 percent of Habitat for Humanity International’s volunteer force; yet often because of lack of training, they account for less than 15 percent of workers on the construction site. The Women Build program was established by Habitat to encourage the involvement of women in the construction of Habitat homes.

How will it work?
Women from all walks of life will work together to fund and build a Habitat home for a Greater Indianapolis family in need. Women volunteers will raise the funds and raise the walls for the entire Women Build project. Habitat for Humanity will rely on more than 300 volunteers to construct the home and recruit friends and family to support their work through a peer-to-peer fundraising campaign. In 2014, women raised $95,000+ to support the project and Habitat mission. In 2015, the women again exceeded their goal and raised $112,000+. Last year, nearly $125,000 was raised by our Women Build participants.

What if I can't make the yoga class but still want to donate?
